Stable funding needed to maintain DFC program

Congress is currently working on the 2012 budget and in order for the Drug Free Communities (DFC) program to support approximately 70 new grants next year (which is roughly comparable to the number that is expected to be awarded in 2011) the funding level of $95 million needs to be maintained.  If less than $95 million is appropriated for 2012 the program will stall out and fund only a small fraction of those who apply. 

Learn how you can advocate for DFC funding at the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America's (CADCA) website.  Prevention WINS receives DFC funding.
